Star Farm Chicago is a non-profit urban farm and landscaping service established in 2016 in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. We work to increase access of local organic produce through farmers markets, pop-ups, delivery, and our local foods co-op. On the farm, we create an inclusive space by providing local jobs, vocational training and horticultural therapy to people with disabilities, employment barriers, and empowering women. Through our work, we hope to inspire the next generation of urban growers and food justice advocates while improving the long term health and mental health outcomes of the community. A Message from our Founder, Farmer, and DirectorAt Star Farm, we're trying to make it easy for you to be more sustainable--whether that's supporting local urban ag or letting us help you grow your own food and raise your own chickens right here in the city. Our goal is to grow more farmers, and then next generation of local food advocates and entrepreneurs. Please enjoy our intentionally curated selection of vegetables, fruit, flowers, and medicine: all native, heirloom, unusual in color, high in nutrients and antioxidants, organic, and pollinator friendly. Our farm family is an inclusive and beautiful mix of children, mothers, youth, adults, caregivers--learning and eating and applying artisanal knowledge of crop care and cultivation, never applying chemicals or pesticides on the soil. Our regenerative growing practices reflect the nurturing environment we've created for our clients to learn and heal. Thank you for supporting your local, non-profit urban farm, and we look forward to seeing you in the garden soon!
